Citizens Report: Hampstead Town Council – Feb 14, 2023

Here are the top take-a-ways from the Hampstead Town Council Meeting:

Town managers report

Town manager Tammi Ledley went over the details for the upcoming 2023 elections.  Two town council members and the mayor are up for election. All three are elected to 4 year terms. Nomination packets will be available at town hall starting March 1 and are due April 10.  Please see the town’s website for more details. Elections will be held on May 9, 2023.

A public hearing has been set for the concept site plan for Hahn’s on Feb 22, 2023.  Breaking ground on construction is still about a year away. 

Many new businesses have been opening in town. Cinco de Mayo, a new dog groomer and Rocco’s Market and Deli have all opened.  Fica specialty coffee bar will open in the next couple of weeks.

The Ridge Engineering expansion is the construction happening at the north end of town. The Carroll County Industrial Authority is getting the rest of the land ready for pad use should a user be identified.  The mayor and council members made clear that contrary to rumors the work is NOT for Amazon or a prison, but instead another business like Ridge.  According to Mayor Nevin, “We’re looking for jobs not trucks”. 

Dollar General should be operational by the end of March 2023.

On January 31, the town submitted an application to MDE requesting funding for recommended water system improvements. The rankings of projects submitted and the funding amounts for the projects will be available in May 2023.  The town is also awaiting preliminary engineering reports from GMB for these improvements.
